Camaro Ground Effects GFX Memo 7/7/09 - proper installation tips

The Camaro Action Center and Technical Assistance have received calls related to the GM Accessory Camaro Ground Effects and problems with the front air dam coming loose. After review of each of the calls to the Action center it was determined that the installation instructions were not completely followed.

It is important to make sure that all of the front attachment rivets are installed. There are 16 rivets used for the SS and 4 are installed with the fascia off the vehicle. There are 17 rivets used for the base model.

Do not use petroleum based cleaning products. If a strong cleaner is required use a 3M general purpose cleaners (P/N 08984). Tape will not adhere to a surface with residue left from petroleum based cleaning products.

Be sure to apply 15lbs of pressure to tape for proper wet out. After the kit has been installed the car should not be driven for 24 hours. The tape that is used during the installation of the front air dam must sit for 24 hours for complete adhesion.

Remember there are two different Ground Effect Kits available.

Part number 92207441 is only used on the base model Camaro
Part number 92208008 is only used on the SS model Camaro

GM has announced that the NEW Ground FX Kits will be available soon.

92243969 - V6 - August 18th
92243971 - V8 - August 16th
These are the LATEST part numbers from GM's new supplier. The MOST IMPORTANT thing with these is CORRECT INSTALLATION. Don't cut corners for installation. Remove the from fascia and affix the front piece with ALL of the retainers to assure a trouble-free installation!
